Carmella Marie McClain was born September 19, 1945. She was born in Sicily and came to America through Ellis island at 7 years old. She became a US citizen living in Ohio, until finally residing in Arizona, most recently in Gilbert. Carmella was a true Italian. Stubborn, opinionated, argumentative though she would say just explaining why she was right.
She had a huge heart and her family meant EVERYTHING to her. She had lifelong friends that she considered family as well. She had an open door policy where you were always welcome to stop by for a visit.
Carmella fought a battle that lasted 7+ years. The cancer that took her body could not take her spirit and she fought it until the bitter end. She is survived by her husband George McClain who was her love of over 40 years. George was her selfless caregiver and there at her bedside as she took her last breath. She is also survived by her only daughter Nicole McClain and oldest son Paul Ebbing, his wife Sabrina and her two grandsons Hunter and Holden who were the light of her life. Carmella went to be with God as an angel among us all April 22, 2022.
